MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Delivering a speech in the Iranian parliament, Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that Tehran's missile program is in compliance with all international regulations and does not violate UNSC resolution 2231, which endorses the JCPOA.
Commenting on Trump's recent claims about possible unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA, the president said that the incumbent US administration showed that it had "lack of commitment to an international agreement" and did not respect negotiations and accords, adding that such country cannot be trusted.
"The enemies should know that violation of any agreement will be detrimental to them, and the Islamic Republic of Iran will give them a decisive answer," Rouhani also said, emphasizing that Tehran will produce any weapon needed for defending Iran's territorial integrity and nation and would not hesitate to use it if there is a necessity to protect the country.
Donald Trump earlier this month refused to recertify Iran's compliance with the JCPOA, citing violations of the spirit of the agreement and threatened to trigger US withdrawal from the agreement despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed that Tehran is adhering to the deal.

The JCPOA was signed in July 2015 by the European Union, Iran and the P5+1 group of nations comprising the United States, Russia, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany. The nuclear agreement stipulates a gradual lifting of sanctions imposed on Iran in exchange for assurances that its nuclear program would remain peaceful.
